PROFESSIONAL ROLES

BIO

Fred is a Physics teacher at Monument High School (at South Boston Education Complex). He has a B.S. Biology degree from the University of the Philippines at Los Banos. He attended Louisiana State University where he is ABD in Zoology. He used to work in crocodile conservation and was the first scientist to document four previously undocumented populations of the Philippine Crocodile, while concurrently studying the population genetics of the species. Serendipitous events led him to his current career as a Physics educator. He is now getting his Certificate in Physics Education from Boston University, and hopes to continue on to a masters in Physics Education and a doctorate in Education. Fred is actively brainstorming for possible dissertation topics. His research interests include cognition and learning and their pedagogical implications.
